The bank's core interest income recorded strong growth of 28% during the quarter due to 58% rise in loans given by the bank. The bank's aggressive retail foray fueled this growth. Retail banking accounted for 12% of the bank's pre-tax profits. On the liability side too, the bank managed to achieve 41% growth in total deposits. Low cost funds however, account for a marginal 14% of total deposits raised by the bank.

While the bank managed to report over 100% growth in net interest income, lower other income, trimmed rise in pre-tax profits. During the quarter the bank's trading income (part of other income) declined by 68% to Rs 251 m, which resulted in overall 41% fall in fee-based income. The contribution of other income to total income also came down to 15% from 28% in 1QFY01. Consequently, UTI Bank's cost to income ratio jumped to 55% from 33% in the comparable previous quarter.
Recoveries effected in NPAs in the June quarter, brought down the bank's provision figure substantially from Rs 419 m in 1QFY01 to Rs 21 m in the current quarter. Through aggressive provisions in FY02, the bank increased its NPA coverage ratio to 34% (from 20%in FY01) and its net NPA ratio came down to 3.3%. UTI Bank's gross NPAs however, increased by 7% in FY02 on the back of its high exposure to corporate clients. Slowdown in the economic activity seems to have impacted its asset quality. If the bank fails to keep check on its assets in the current fiscal then provision figure could increase towards the year end.
At the current market price of Rs 43, UTI Bank is trading at a P/E of 6x 1QFY03 annualised earnings and adjusted price to book value ratio of 1.8x. The bank's aggressive expansion has reduced its capital adequacy ratio to 9.3% as on June 2002 from 10.7% in March 2002. Reduction in capital could hinder the bank's future growth plan unless it increases its capital base by diluting equity or through borrowings.
Axis Bank declared the results for the third quarter of the financial year ended March 2017 (3QFY17). The bank has reported 4.1% YoY growth in net interest income while net profits declined 73.4% YoY in 3QFY17.
